Good News !
iDo is the most accurate smart thermometer in the world for your smart phone that measures and monitors temperature precisely and continuously.
iDo also supplies an open SDK for developers to build their own iDo integration into their products.
How iDo works
Place iDo underneath your armpit with the disposable patches, open the mobile app ( iDo Smart ) and connect with iDo by bluetooth, iDo will take a measurement every several seconds.
Standard battery is replaceable and easy to set up. The battery can work over 180 days.
- Designed for Accurate measurement
iDo is developed on accurate integrated chip specially for accurate, safe and fast temperature measurements.
- Transferred with Bluetooth wireless energy technology
iDo uses bluetooth low energy(BLE) to transform the data to the device app(iDo smart), no network connection required when take a measurement.
- Alert immediately
iDo shows alert by screen color and sound quickly when the temperature exceeds the threshold.
- Monitor with continuous reading
iDo provides temperature change history for doctor use. Normal thermometers can’t catch dangerous temperature spikes because they only provide one-time readings.
- iDo is very easy to use
If you can use a smart phone, you can use an iDo.
Battery is replaceable.
- As small as a coin
iDo Smart --- Mobile App
iDo Smart is the iDo companion mobile app that we are focusing on developing. It is very simple and concise.
This is very helpful for little children who often have a continua fever. The parents can track the temperature change and monitor the children’s health with our iDo.
The SDK --- Make your Own Apps
We open up our platform and offer an SDK for developers to create their own applications for temperature with the standard Bluetooth GATT specification.
Supporters at the Developer tier will also receive access to raw, unfiltered temperature data - frequently ~1 sample per 2 to 10 seconds - which can be used for the most delicate scientific and research applications.
So just take it, play with it, graph it, do whatever you want with it. We'd love to hear your thoughts on what you might want to build with iDo, and how you could directly interact with the hardware, and the data it collects that maybe from environment temperature, basal body temperature, to bluetooth item finder,
What people do iDo for ?
- For Children Monitor the temperature in the kid’s fever to detect earlier the increases. Help doctor to administer the medication with temperature change history.
- For Adults Track temperature for people who has a fever. Help women record body basal temperature for preparing to conceive.
- For Developers iDo is an Open Source Hardware. Easy and low-cost for you to build your owner applications, realize your bright ideas. Even more to measure temperature!
Why we use iDo ?
- Meet your personal normal temperature range
People have different normal temperatures at different sites and ages. The following pictures show normal temperature ranges by age and different body parts.
Personal normal temperature is very important for our health. With the conventional thermometers we need to take the measurement for many times. iDo is very easy to monitor our own normal temperature.
- Monitor temperature for many uses
iDo records the evolution of the temperature which is very useful in many situations. iDo can monitor temperature changes during the fever or help women to record their BBT( basal body temperature ) for conception.
More Fun with iDo
Our iDo have a smart white shell. Further more we will supply more awesome stickers for you who peldge us. We can decorate our personal iDo with more funny faces.

We are a team of designers, engineers, and operations staff based in Shanghai, China. Collectively, Our core members have been engaged in hardware research for over 10 years. We are always focusing on providing better products and services. Our goal is to encourage social innovation and develop the open-source hardware ecosystem by building a physical and online community in China.
This product is guaranteed for 1 year date of purchase against material and / or workmanship defects.
We have been developed our iDo smart thermometer for about one year. After much engineering, testing, and planning, we are getting ready to move our product through the final development steps and into your hands.
Your funding will be used to for design - both software and hardware, engineering, and manufacturing is an expensive process, and our funding goal has been set to allow us the ability to ship the most complete, and most functional device and service that we can. Your help will accelerate us towards this goal.
Over the coming months, We want to know how iDo can affects our life, what we can learn from your idea to build our best possible product and share everything about iDo with you.
Your contribution matters to us, and so does your voice - so please, tell your friends!
Risks and challenges
· Quality Control.
We have spent more than 10 months on our product and we have changed several times with the prototypes and adjusted the tooling. Our partners have worked with the manufacturers several times before and we are confident with them. Our iDo have already passed the 0-series production run, but there are still risks involved with every consumer project. We have to be care about every test procedure at the factory that could lead to delay.
· Application Development.
Our biggest challenge ahead will be designing an excellent application to analyze and present your temperature data in pleasantly ways. We have developed the Alpha version of iOS mobile application and it is not very easy to approve by the apple store but we have already got it the first version. We have been working on our mobile app with more functions and developing the app for android system. In such a case our software needs another technical or visual iteration and the release might be delayed. At the same time, we look forward to having mutual communication with our backers, soliciting and incorporating your feedback in our development process.
